Step 1. Find the highest and lowest scores in the distribution. Step 2. Compute the real range. Step 3. Create 10 intervals. Divide the real range found in Step 1 by 10 and round this result to the nearest whole number, whether odd or even. This gives you the width i of the interval to be used for this data set. Step 4. Use the lowest score as the minimum value in the lowest interval. Create an interval beginning with this lowest score as the apparent lower limit of the interval. Then count up until you

have created an interval that contains a number of scores equal to i , computed in Step 3. The highest number is the apparent upper limit of the interval. Example: (Note that this example doesn’t correspond to the numerical example in this assignment.) Suppose that the lowest score in the whole data set were 9. Suppose that your computation of i in Step 3 led to i = 6. Then you would create a bottom interval containing the following scores: 9 10 11 12 13 14. The lowest interval would be 9-14. The apparent lower limit would be 9; the apparent upper limit would be 14. The interval contains i=6 different scores in all. To create the next interval (interval #2), add your interval width to the upper limit of the previous interval (interval #1). That will be the upper limit of your next limit (interval #2). The next highest score compared to the upper limit of your previous interval (interval #1) will be the lower limit of your next interval (interval #2).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
